VOL 02: INTO THE WILDERNESS

Autumn 2013

In Blackbird Vol. 2, we pay a visit to two under-spoken heavyweights of the motoring world: the eccentric Toyota 2000GT restoration specialist, artist, designer, engineer, and author Shin Yoshikawa in California; and McLaren P1 designer Frank Stephenson, a man considered by many to be one of the most accomplished automobile designers of our era. These two masters of their respective trades share with us their thoughts on the art of the automobile, and their differing approaches to their craft.

Alongside these features, we test drive two iconic motors from polarizing spectrums for this issue - the Pagani Huayra hypercar designed and built by Horacio Pagani, and a futuristic electric vehicle from Renault simply known as the Twizy, both representing leading innovations in their unique sector of the automotive industry.
